CHESTER City came from behind to record their first double win of the season on Saturday, defeating Bury 2-1 at the Deva Stadium in a fiercely contested League Two North West derby match.
Bury took the lead after 16 minutes slightly against the run of play, with Andy Bishop taking advantage of some sloppy marking to slot the ball home from ten yards, following good work down the right by Adams.
Chester, however, grabbed their equaliser in stoppage time in the first period. The Bury defence only half cleared a corner from the right, the ball fell to Mark Hughes who drilled an unstoppable 20 yard effort past Provert.
And City grabbed their winner ten minutes from time, after Bishop was sent off rather harshly for a second bookable offence.
Man of the match Kevin Roberts beat his marker before crossing to Kevin Ellison, who headed home from close range, the ball hitting the post on its way into the net.
Upbeat Chester City boss Bobby Williamson said: “It’s a great three points for us, we knew it was going to be difficult and that certainly proved to be the case. Bury came here and got themselves in front, and it took us a while to get back into it.
“We managed to get a goal at half time, this helped us tremendously and gave us something to build on in the second half, and thankfully young Kevin Roberts had a desire to get to the by line, and he put a great ball into Ellison, a left winger playing on the right, who also showed a great desire and he has got us a winning goal.”
